    to have something on

    Hi everyone,

    Can I say "What are you wearing?" in the following ways:

    1. What are you having on?
    2. What have you got on?
    3. What do you have on?

    Thank you.

    Note that, in the right context, #2 and #3 could mean, "What have you got planned (for the near future)?" or even, "What are you involved in at the moment?"
